administration, president obama's administration, charged with this duty is the director of office of management and budget, historically that has been the case. but my concerns go deeper than that. i believe that every public official in this nation owes an absolute loyalty to the united states, to the betterment of this country and its government. and to the institutional processes that lead to the governing of america. there can be no doubt that every government official from the president on down is accountable to the institutions of our government and to the people, ultimately, without doubt the direction of o.m.b., the director of o.m.b. has such a duty. he's required to meet that duty with honor, honesty, efficiency, and responsiveness. he serves us. we don't serve him. he serves the american people. the american people send their money to washington and they expect it will be honestly and openly managed, accountable. they have every right to demand high performance from all officials, but particularly the director of the office of office of management and budget. surely there can be no h

. according to president obama's former jobs council, by 2020 would be a million and have jobs without the college graduates to fill them. while there is a persistent unmet demand of four to 500,000 job openings and health care sector alone. recent reports indicate that there are not enough skilled applicants to fill the jobs in the booming natural gas industry. now, suppose colleges provided prospective students with reliable information on the unemployment rate and potential earnings white magic. what if parents have access to a clear and understandable breakdowns between academic studies and amenities? what with those costs be? armed with this knowledge, families and students could make better decisions about where to go to school, and how to budget their tuition dollars. students would actually have a better chance of graduating within four years and getting a job. helping students realize opportunity and a career, while keeping tuition costs low makes common sense. senators rubio and widen have a proposal that they unveiled right here at aei, which addresses this goal. i look forw

'm tempted to describe president obama's spending and tax ideas as small ball, but they're worse than that. they represent a conscious decision to neglect some of the most pressing issues that confront our country. you might even say it's a dereliction of duty in the battle to save america. last week, the congressional budget office projected that our gross national debt will increase from $16 trillion in 2012 to $26 trillion in 2023. now, that may seem like a long way off, but just since president obama has been president, the national debt's gone up by 55%, just in the last four years. but if you project that forward to 2023 when some of these young men and women who are working here as pages will be looking at entering the work force and looking at their futures, all they will see ahead of them is debt and a reduced standard of living. this is what lies ahead for all of us unless we embrace real spending cuts and unless we deal with the unfunded liabilities of medicare and social security. now, president obama has a secret strategy for getting our debt under control, we'd all love to he

$10.50, i think president obama suggested $9.50 at one point but nothing was ever done about it, it would take a lot of people off of welfare and put 'em back to work. and that's what we really need. >> host: okay. all right. joyce in bethesda near maryland, republican caller not too far from the capitol, go ahead, joyce. >> caller: good morning. >> host: morning. >> caller: and thank you very much for c-span. i wanted to bring out, first of all, we want them to cut spending, but more importantly than that, we want them to address this issue of drugs in our schools. we met with president obama's drug policy staff on the 23rd of january asking them to do this and telling them that we really held them responsible for, actually, treason against children. if you're, if you are violating a and certainly our children everywhere taking, taking into consideration the children in connecticut who were 20 babies killed, and we all believe that somewhere along the line there's a drug issue involved here. >> host: so, joyce, when it comes to spending cuts, are you saying, yeah, we need to cu

're punting. as president obama said yesterday, it would simply raise the question "do you end funding that helps disabled children or poor children? do i close this naval shipyard or that one?" it is not a solution and even members of the republican caucus have questioned this proposal, and they've said so publicly. and, mr. president, why would they -- the republicans, part of the legislative branch of government -- cede more power to the white house? republicans should give congress true flexibility, flexibility to cut wasteful subsidies, flexibility to close down necessary tax hoo loopholes, and flexibility to ask the richest of the rich to contribute a little bit more. instead, they've completely become inflexible insisting we risk hundreds of thousands of american jobs as well as programs that strengthen families and small businesses across the nation. but that should, mr. president, i'm sorry to say, come as no surprise. as usual, the republicans have put the demands of special interests -- the richest of the rich, people making up to $5 million a year, not being asked to contri

to tweet us, it's c-span wj. if you want to e-mail us, journal@c-span.org. what's the obama administration's approach to border security? >> guest: it's very interesting because now border security's becoming very complex. there's a strong border security component to the immigration reform bill that's being discuss ed and to the proposal that was put together by the so-called gang of eight senators who sat down in a bipartisan way and came up with a new proposal. their border security component is somewhat specific, and their whole immigration reform package hinges on securing that border. the obama administration proposal has more to do with interior enforcement, with changing laws of how we enforce verification of employment, the fact that people are here in the united states legally, all that kind of thing. and it's less specific on the border element of that. now, to me the whole hinge centers around what is a secure border. i mean, what is border security? and, in fact, there's no definition. it's subject to different interpretations, and what they're doing in the senate proposal whi
